94 Point Rated - Bob Campbell The Real Review
"Intense, weighty chardonnay with grapefruit, white peach, lime, oyster-shell and a hint of wood-smoke flavours. A rich, power-packed and quite complex wine that is approachable now but should develop well with a little bottle-age."
92 Point Rated - James Suckling
"I like the complexity here and the way it is delivered. Bold, peachy chardonnay fruit aromas and flavors are laced with toasted hazelnut and some toasty warmth, too. All works well. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
The fruit was lightly whole bunch pressed and the juice fermented in American oak barrels, fifty per cent of which were new, using selected yeast strains. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, followed by ten months aging on yeast lees with regular stirring. Only the very best barrels were selected for the Omaka Reserve Chardonnay.
